New to me 2006 450XC Special Edition

Recommended Posts

Hello Guys,


I usually ride my CR, and last weekend a friend gave me his "old" KTM to try out.  It hadnt been started in 6 months, I cleaned the carb, solved some electrical issues and the bike started right away.  


Im taking it to the desert today, but to be honest I dont know what to expect.  I have never ridden a thumper before, only 2 strokes. I know Im late to the party, everything is 4 strokes now, but I just have a blast on my CR.


How much do the riding techniques change?  I mean Im usually slipping the clutch and wide open throttle on the CR, I ride only open desert and sand dunes.  


What does the special edition tag mean? Is it really special? :)


Im guessing thumpers are more of a low reving torque monsters?  Any how, if any of you guys has this bike and rides desert Ill be glad to listen to your experiences.
